Peony Bouquet

As March comes to a close, here at Wildwood we're watching the Peonies unfold their giant petals.

The show begins with the tree Peonies.  First the leaves appeared on our four foot tall plants, then the buds.  It's hard to miss the egg sized buds walking by especially after a rain when they tug over an entire branch.  If they are not picked, the buds open quickly.  Usually an entire tree transforms itself from green to glorious overnight.  The deep magenta is one of our favorites.

Coming soon, the bush Peonies!
